From 1 Winning Drive: Injury updates, playing time, and a list

August 22, 2007 | WNST Staff

The Ravens practice this morning was missing a couple of players, as both Haloti Ngata (knee) and Cory Ross(sick) missed practice. They join the list of other teammates not practicing:
Mark Clayton (ankle)
Samari Rolle(ankle)
P.J. Daniels (hamstring)
Dan Wilcox (ankle)
Steve Edwards (knee)
Dan Cody (knee)*
Jon Ogden (toe)*
Mike Smith (shoulder)*
* on physically unable to perform list
Coach Billick said that he is not sure where this theory of "the starters play more in the third preseason game" came from, but it is not true. He said that the starters could play a quarter or could play a half on Saturday. Some of the players said that they are expecting to play a long time.
Peter King ( was here today interviewing some players. Peter has a list coming out that will lead to a lot of talk on the radio station. Peter has ranked the top 500 players in the NFL and there apparently will be several Ravens on that list although some of them may not be pleased with their ranking. Ray Lewis came in the locker room after talking to Peter and said to Ed Reed that Ed should see the list, and then joked that Peter should give up writing after making this list.

Guess we will have to wait and see.
